Anyone here use the built in bitlocker on Win 10 ? i used it previously to encrypt my external drives on Win7 Ultimate. Took like a day maybe to do a 2TB.

Anyway recently went to encrypt a new 4TB drive using Win10, and it has taken 48hrs to do only 28%

Making matters worse, is i read it was quicker to run bitlocker in recovery mode, so my computer has been in recovery mode for 48hrs making it unusable while it churns away.

I have since paused the encryption, and pulled the drive out, does anyone know if i can complete the encryption on Win7 cos 27% and two days non-stop without my main comp, is a bit of a joke.
